About Me:
I have been a knitter since I was a teenager, right now I am working on shawls, socks and Barbie clothes for my Granddaughters. Sheldon looked interesting for my Grandsons for Christmas Most of the items I knit I give away, always have hats for the little ones, just hate to see uncovered heads when it is cold out. Take them to Church and give to all little ones that have a bare head.

Had a bad storm soon after I got home from the office and I think we are going to have another one. Continue

Have the second Sheldon almost finished and he sure looks better than the first, use a size 2 needle and knitted a little tighter. I am happy with what I have so far.

After a few days, I have the second Sheldon finished, but I am stupid or something, I do not understand the directions at the end with the tail, I need a visiual, could someone send me a picture of the "behind" of Sheldon. Thanks, Sharon

Received the yarn for Sheldon and have read the directions so think I am ready to start. Wish me luck

That sounds like a whole lot of fun...the traveling with the other T owners. We often see a group on the raad and comment on how they all seem so happy and proud. And we love the Black Hills area of SD. Beautiful and wonderful geology...another interest for us. SD is our legal home so we visit from time to time to get new drivers licenses.

I added you as a friend (if you accept). I'm a bit new on this online chatting so not sure if I made it easier to chat by doing this or not! Anyway, you asked what I am working on. I finished knitting Christmas presents- mostly socks, hats, scarves. but I did my first sort of lacy wrap. I love how it turned out! I saw all your photos and am SO impressed! You do beautiful work. I'll see if I can figure out how to add photos...which reminds me to take pictures before I wrap the presents. It's the only way I can remember what I have already given to kids/grandkids!. The park we are in here on the coast of GA is new and very nice. Not so much of a destination park as FL ones would be. But I need to be here for this winter to finish up some medical treatments. Then we hope to hit the road this Spring. And live where the wheels stop.

Yes, Sharon, we live full time in a RV. Currently we are in a RV park just off I-95 along the coast of GA. I knot all the time! It's such a good craft for the RV life style as it doesn't weigh much nor take up too much space. Where is Orange FL?

Sharon, I'm glad you found the problem. I had some meetings today and my sister is in the hospital so I was on family duty this evening with her. Let me know if you have any other problems with it and I'll see if I can help. ♥cheryl

Pattern of green shawl .


Patter is knitted on 12sts.
Place markers at every 12th sts.

Row 1 - * Yo, K2tog * Rep.

Row 2 - Purl

Row 3- Knit

Row 4 - Purl

Row 5 - * Sl 1-K2tog - psso , K4 , Yo, K1, Yo, K4 * Rep

Row 6 - * P3 tog, P4, Yo, P1, Yo, P4 * Rep.

Row 7 - * P3 tog, P4, Yo, P1, Yo, P4* Rep.

Row 8 - * Sl 1-K2tog - psso , K4 , Yo, K1, Yo, K4 * Rep

Row 9 - * P3 tog, P4, Yo, P1, Yo, P4* Rep.



I have made this in multiples of 8 or 10 or 2 or 3 for a scarf you can make it as large or small as you wish and whatever yarn you like.


I made the one I posted a picture of with 96 sts. + 8 (4 at each end that are knit on all rows)

I think the pattern works out best if you add a few knit sts at each end.

Yarn I used was #3 you could try a DK like City Tweed or Swish or gloss or elegance

Needles 5mm circular 80cm long

I finish it with row 1 and 1 row of knit then cast of I have to check this out I’m not sure if that is right.

Hi Sharon!
How about West Virginia?
Would have please even if took the present of the tortoise; sleep, and my family is near, and is not.
I live in big city Tokyo, but the parents do rural living in the distance of approximately 3 hours by Shinkansen.
I will go to parents of the master next week because it is a summer vacation of the master. This is around 2 hours by air, too.
I knit my summer dress from now on today. The underpants for summer of the son sewed cloth and made it. As for the clothes for summer, the thing of the boy is serious.
Because that place seems to be hot, please be careful about a body.
